I stocked up on this yarn and sat with it for about a week, imagining what I wanted to create with it. Finally, I decided on big and bulky with a drape to die for and …. I grabbed my 25mm hook and just started chaining….
When the first one was finished and I put her on the mannequin, I thought it looked like a fluffy cloud. The second color I made it in….was actually called ‘Cloud’ – so what better name than ʻōpua, which mans ‘a bank of billowy clouds’. I will be making more of these for sure!
This pattern works up quickly, you know I love quick projects!
I found my 25mm hook at Michaels HERE.
2 Skeins Yarn Bee Luciana Yarn (UPDATE: I find that each skein seems to work up differently and I’m left with a different amount left over each time. I would buy 3 balls to be safe.) *this yarn has been discontinued but a weight 5 yarn of your choice (Lion Brand Homespun?) will work as well!*
1 Crochet Hook size 25mm
1 Yarn Needle
NOTE: These big stitches can make it difficult to see the end of your row with the drape, I use stitch markers each time I ch1 and turn so I don’t miss the end of the row!
Row 1: Ch. 51, hdc in 2nd chain from hook, hdc in each stitch to end, ch 1, turn (50 st)
Rows2-25: hdcTog in first 2 stitches, hdc to last 2 stitches, hdcTog in last 2 stitches
Row 26: hdcTog last 2 stitches, ch 1, cut and pull yarn through. Move on to making and attaching tassles.
Make 3 of the following:
Cut 13 Pieces of yarn approx. 17 inches long
Reserve 2 pieces for tying
Tie 11 strips of yarn in the center with a double knot
UPDATE: I’ve found that the skeins don’t work up the same each time for me and I’m left with barely any yarn left or quite a bit …. if there isn’t enough for tassels this size, I have been adjusting the length/number of pieces per tassel and in one case, I just tight on fringe like I would a scarf because I had so little left.
Fold pieces in half with tie at the top, use 2nd reserved strip of yarn to tie tassel where you want your top to end.
Tie tassels to each point of your scarf with a double or tripple knot, fold top ties down and use your yarn needle to thread through the middle tie that makes that tassel, as shown above.
Trim Tassels to your desired length.
